The Trojan Women
November 12th, 13th, and 14th at 7:00 pm
*Performances in the Art Courtyard and livestreamed
The morning after the sacking of Troy, the surviving women--their husbands, sons, and fathers killed--await their fate at the hands of the victorious Greeks. Euripides's classic play presents Hecuba, the proud Queen of Troy as she steels herself and her subjects for slavery and death, seeking desperately for any opportunity to defy their captors. The devastating scene that follows, as the Greeks dole out even more death and divide the women among themselves, has served as one of the Western world's most powerful indictments of war of 2500 years.
The War of the Worlds

*Performance virtually due to Covid-19
Clements Theatre reenacts the infamous broadcast from New York's Mercury Theatre in 1938. Based on the novel by H. G. Wells, this performance had many terrified listeners convinced that an actual alien invasion of Earth was taking place.
